Comments from the Curator:
This uniform is in
unissued condition. It is also unworn. It was obtained along with many other items that once belonged to Major General Harlan Nelson Hartness. This grouping includes 2 of Hartness's patched which are both of WWII manufanture style, and both of which show evidence of once having been sewn on one of his uniforms. Additional provenance is seen by a large folder full of newspaper clippings and a few original photos illustrating segments of Hartness's interesting Army Career. This is an affordable grouping for a collector on a budget wishing to have a proven combat general in his collection.
